Jago Hua Savera

Made in 1959 in what was then East Bengal,A J  Kardar’s Jago Hua Savera was to have been screened at the Mumbai Film Festival, staring on October 20. But the prevailing political climate has not allowed this. It was shown at Cannes and was a hit. Called a gem. A big miss.


India’s pick of Vetrimaaran’s Visaaranai (Interrogation) as the official submission for the 2017 Foreign Language Oscar is undoubtedly a great choice. The movie was inspired by a Coimbatore autorickshaw driver, M. Chandrakumar’s horrific experiences behind bars.

Love in the time of war

There is little romance in The Sound of Music –  between the Captain’s eldest daughter, Liesl (Charmian Carr), and Rolfe. Director Robert Wise captures the tender feelings between the two in an immensely  melodic song:

You are 16, going on 17..
